Concert reviews: Saturday 21 February 2015

On Saturday 21 February 2015 at Royal Festival Hall, the Orchestra performed a full programme of Beethoven, conducted by Marin Alsop. The programme included Beethoven's Leonore Overture, Symphony No. 7 and Piano Concerto No. 3, performed with soloist David Fray. 

Here are the first press reviews of Saturday's concert ...

‘The highlight of the concert and one of the best pieces of orchestral playing I have heard in quite a long time was the final work on the programme – the Seventh Symphony – which Alsop conducted without a score.'
Robert Beattie, Seen and Heard International, 23 February 2015

‘One must praise the mettle and tirelessness of the LPO, a superbly unanimous and dynamic response, especially from the string-players.'
Colin Anderson, Classical Source, 22 February 2015
